The Goofy Game of Golf Searching for the Answer

This was one of the goofiest weeks I have had since I started doing the blog. We went to Millcreek this week which is golf heaven. The course did not disappoint and was in beautiful shape. We played 36 holes for 35 dollars with a cart and the weather was perfect. The next day was the 36 hole South Park mens championship. When I was finished, later that evening I went over to Mt. Lebanon and played 13 holes. In two days I had played 85 holes and still did not feel golfed out. As you noticed I have not mentioned any scores yet. I also played Saturday and today. Now here comes the scores with the exception of the 13 holes at Mt. Lebo. 82, 83, 83, 77, 72, and 84. I am at a loss for words here. The 72 is an even par round at South Park from the white tees but it was a very consistant round. I did not take advantage of some of the easier par 5’s but I had 16 pars, a birdie on the tough 235 par 3 13th where I put a 3 wood within 4 ft. of the cup for a 2. I made one bogey on the 6th hole and shot the even par. I made every 4 to 6 ft putt I looked at except one for a birdie on 17. Then today I ballooned to an 84 and was yippy all day on chips and putts. But this doesn’t bother me as much as the fact, this was one of the worst ball striking days off the tee I have had in almost 2 years. I have no explanation for what happened today and for the generally bad play for most of the week. I had worked on some addrees position things and when I shot 37, 38, and 39, for the 27 holes of the South Park event and to follow that up with an even par 72 I thought I might be getting a little closer to the answer. But today shot that out the water. Going to do a new course next week and we will see what happens. The search continues.

  1. 16 pars and a bird, nice Nick Faldo-ish round. I think you were in the zone because of all the made 4-6 footers. As soon as you missed one or mis-hit a chip, that was probably the signal to your brain that you were no longer in the zone. The poor ball striking was just an artifact. At least you played a ton!


    1. Yes, it was a very strange week. Looking for these mental keys reminds me when I was looking for the key to the swing. Lots of up and downs and wrong moves but the experiment will continue.
